Wow, it's been a long time since we posted anything here...a really long time. I talked with Sicarus, he's going to be debuting his new .. uhm, shall we say career.. on our Blog in the next few days ( I think, I'll poke and prod him some more. )
Simon has been busy with work, and probably forgot about his blog again. I'll throw some texts his way and he'll show up again.
Our webcomic artist has been overwhelmed with course work (the same course work as me, actually.) We will slowly be returning to our DedalusTech activities in roughly two weeks (since finals will be over by then). You'll get to see a lot more of us, and lots of exciting things are on the way (hooray!)
Some of the MarbleBlast.com users are probably aware of the big announcement on the way (if you remember Project X). We'll probably have an announcement post pinned on the forums sometime this weekend for everyone to look at. Oh and I did not forget about Marble Blast Fubar. I've actually recruited some help from a few fellow colleagues. We'll resume working on that sometime after Project X is released.
More stuff later. Just providing a quick update since our site has been lacking activity lately.
I just got a Twitter account today. This thing at worked wanted me to follow them, so I justified it that way. Not a big fan of it, but maybe I'll stop being old and cranky and just go with it.
@SimonDedalus2 if you're so inclined. Apparently someone has already used my name, so I had to put a 2 in there. The otherone is probably me and I created an account while drunk. I shall investigate later. I may throw up one of them Twitter plug ins that broadcast my tweets as well.
Oh, I've actually been writing lately and some semi good stuff too. And I've been reading Cory Doctorow's new book, Homeland. Enjoying it a lot. I'll have some things to say once I'm finished.
Well, we seem to be the most infrequent posters ever on the internet. Most people have the sense to just quit and not keep coming back as if there is some hope. Oh well, it's fun sometimes just to get words written.
I've been playing games, of course. I'm still playing Secret World and the new issue that came out this week, was amazing. I really enjoyed it. It has a bit of an Indiana Jones vibe. I still like the last phase of the previous issue, with Tyler Freeborn, but this one was overall better I think. Supposedly, the last part, if you ride the train for thirteen hours, something happens. I'm going to try it tomorrow.
I've also been playing World of Warcraft a bit more than before. No raiding, but loggin in more. I'm not sure why. It's a good expansion, too bad two years late.
I also resubbed to Eve Online for some reason. I've had fun, but it is an amazingly frustrating game sometimes. Very hardcore in all aspects of game play. I may write something up on it later.
Also, I watched all the current episodes of the new season of Archer over the weekend. Show is still great.
See you again in two weeks!
Yes, hi, hello. It's been about 10 months since I've posted here. Predominately because I let my Youtube Channel die. But, I have started again! I'm going to run my channel properly this time. I've already got an upload schedule set and am going to (try to) stick with it. I'll be putting up a variety of videos; Let's Plays, Pokemon battles, Pokemon teambuildings, and games of various FPS's on Xbox. So, if you've got a few minutes and some curiosity check out my channel. If you like it, drop me a sub. If you love it, spread it to some friends. If you've never seen competitive Pokemon before, check it out. It's very different than the game you played back in 1997. It's a very strategic game that takes a lot of skill to be good at (more than I have), and it's a fun and competitive challenge if you like turn based strategy.
Simon and I have been working on the back end of the site for the past few hours and are currently working on redesigning the home page of the website. We may be upgrading to a newer version of our framework at some point in the next few weeks, but for now we're going to play around with building custom modules and seeing what we like best.
I've also spend a good portion of this morning rebuilding the Webcomic Archive section. You'll notice the layout no longer uses the pop-out version, since several users were complaining about how difficult it was to navigate. I've heard a lot of good things about the new layout, so I believe we're going to stick with this new setup for good. In addition to the layout changes, logged in users can now 'Rate' images. We are working on integrating article comments with images so you can discuss your favorite comic strips directly on the page!
That is all for now, we will post when we add more content.
